    OK.. we were talking about rulers, etc in the chat and got to discussing the FIskars Rotary Ruler, and it was mentioned that it has been discontinued.. I thought I had seen one at Wally World on sale.. so I just went and got the LAST 2... one for Jill and one for me... think I'll go see if they have any at the other Wally World.. nice looking piece of equipment for cutting strips.

    I got one of these a gift years ago. I have not figured it out yet. It is very confusing to me to use. I changed the blade once and had to have Fiskars send me a whole new blade unit. Be careful with blade changes. I couldn't figure out how to get it all back the same way it was. It is the only quilting tool I have that gets the best of me. :shock:

    We have 2 WalMarts here in town.. I bought both that the newer one had and scoured the second one and didn't find any.. but I'll keep my eyes open for any more
    Last week I bought 5 rulers of various sizes, on sale from .99 to 3.99 all marked way down.. and I got a baby rotary cutter and a 6x24 cutting mat for $5. each.

    Hey Tippy! I knew it would be something simple! Oh well, live and learn. I didn't know they had quilting supplies anymore. Maybe just some of the stores quilt selling them.

    Good grief, maybe I can make it to one this week. Not tomorrow, especially if I don't get to bed soon! A new one opened near here about 6 months ago. will get the directions from the web.

    One can never have too many toys! My next score will be a small cutting mat that turns. I had to square 440 6" pieced squares to 5". I was so pooped after that. then I had to sew them together. It is my favorite everyday quilt though. One of the quilt stores is having their annual sale next week. I plan to be 1st in line!!
